    Guys,
    We are Marine craft Company in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a river dominated country, so people needs badly of fiber glass fishing and Recreational pontoon and yatches. Is there any Company where we can collaborate with each other, and make our products for 10 million people of Southern Bangladesh. TIA

    rotomolded kayaks are fairly inexpensive once the mold is capitalized. This means find a USA kayak maker.

    Two rigged together with a catamaran like platform would suffice as a double handed subsistence fishing vessel. It requires two paddlers one each side.

    It could be designed and cut to a top half and bottom half so the parts would nest in stacks for shipping.

    The problem is cost. Each hull would be $350 at a minimum.

    Boats are just plain expensive. What you might do is find as US yacht builder to partner with. Set up a boat building yard with your local hired cabinet makers. The US would send over bare fiberglass hulls for completion. But how would the yacht be returned to the US market?

    In general this means to find a fiberglass mold maker and get them shipped to you. Ask for funding help though. And use plywood to finish the decks and interior. Marine Trader yachts in New Jersey uses this method successfully. Except they import the hull from somewhere outside the USA.

    So you guys need to find a buyer for your own plain hulls. A stack can be shipped on a freighter deck non-container style. Making your own local sold boats becomes economical using US dollars.

    Laminating fiberglass is labor intensive. No US manufacturer can compete with someone in India. Further, environmental regulations add a large cost to fiberglass products in the US. You can hand-lay the boats locally at a much lower cost. What kind of products or services does you marine craft company provide?

    Here is a concept design for local building. The idea is to have a single standard bow mold.

    There would be three foot long U sections from a short section mold. There would be special reinforcement at bolt locations. Each section would be nesting in the previous with an OVERLAP of 6 inches. Bolts every 8 inches with bedding epoxy would connect and seal the hull. The bottom could be faired ok. In fact the goal is to use utility grade finish.

    The target size for the U mold is something determined by local fishermen. My guess is a 4 foot beam with 1 to three feet of vertical size. The cost becomes the length of the boat.

    The logistics of handwork becomes a layup efficiency. MANY section molds could be made and distributed for a village construction scenario.

    Absolute nonsense. Cost can never be the length of anything. The rest of the sentences are too screwed up to even analyze.

    I don't have trouble understanding the sentences although I'm not sure the concept is right for this.
    He's saying the cost would = x number of standard modules + 1 bow module.

    That is complicated, expensive and heavier than a standard design.
